Longtime Reston Residents Purchase Lake Anne Coffee House

Lake Anne Coffee House

Lake Anne Coffee House has new ownership.

The coffee house on the plaza, which has been for sale for more than a year, has been purchased by Realtor Eve Thompson and her husband Rick. (Note: Eve Thompson’s Reston Real Estate is also a Reston Now sponsor)

Current owners Susan and Jimmy Sohn have operated the coffee shop for nearly nine years. They told Reston Now in 2014 that they want to sell and retire.

Eve Thompson said she wants to create a gathering space in the lakeside location.

“We’re going to focus on creating a great community space,” she said. “Our home is at Lake Anne, my office is at Lake Anne and now we will have a coffee shop at Lake Anne. That is proof we really believe in Lake Anne.”

The Thompsons said they expect to close on the deal later this month. They will do a top-to-bottom renovation of the space, Eve Thompson said.

The name of the establishment will remain Lake Anne Coffee House. The couple plans to overhaul the existing menu with locally roasted coffee and high quality baked goods, Eve Thompson said.

The Lake Anne Plaza area is about to undergo a multiyear revitalization project. The area containing the coffee house is not planned for renovation, but will eventually be part of a wider boulevard leading to the historic inner plaza.
